MK Dons v Manchester United Betting Preview

This should be interesting. It hasn’t been the most convincing of starts to competitive action from Louis van Gaal with the Red Devils, so are they facing a bit of a banana skin in this one on the road? We probably won’t be seeing the strongest United side and the Dons could be eying up a major giant killing act.

MK Dons v Manchester United Betting Tips

This is the first ever meeting between the two sides, as League One side MK Dons get the chance at the Stadium MK to claim a big scalp. The Dons are sitting seventh in League One after a W2 D1 L1 record to open the season with and they put out rivals AFC Wimbledon in the first round to get their shot at United. There have been plenty of goals coming from the Dons this season, ten so far in their five games played this term. They could only managed a home 0-0 draw against Coventry in the league on the weekend though. Maybe they had one eye on this big contest?

Out of their previous six clashes with Premier League sides in the League Cup, the MK Dons have won two and lost four. They have some decent options like Will Grigg and Benik Afobe (on loan from Arsenal) at 4/1 and Tom Hitchcock at 5/1 to find a goal in the game. That is the only three out and out strikers they have on their books though. But Karl Robinson’s men won’t be afraid to have a go at this one and it could just be worth backing the game to go over 2.5 goals for a bit of excitement, because it’s unlikely that United will be completely at full strength.

Manchester United, with a defeat against Swansea and a draw at Sunderland haven’t made the most auspicious starts to the new season. But they may be able to cut loose here. The last time that they played in the second round of the league cup was all the way back in 1995, which shows how long they have been at the top in England (teams involved in Europe don’t come in until later). Incidentally, United lost that tie 4-3 on aggregate against York. However, the Red Devils have posted wins in five of their last six clashes with opposition from a lower division.

MK Dons v Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester United 1/3, Draw 4/1, MK Dons 7/1

Grab some money back insurance on the first goalscorer market from online betting site Stan James on any televised English or Scottish match. If your backed selection scores the second goal of the game but not the first, then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet. New customers can get a free £10 bet as welcome bonus too from the book.

MK Dons v Manchester United Predictions

The romantics of cup action will be thinking that the MK Dons are going to be worth having a punt on. They probably aren’t as there is still a big gulf in class between the two sides, no matter what kind of shape United are in. Wouldn’t expect anything other than a United win, but it might be worth having a shot at both teams to score for 4/6 too.

Stan James

Welcome to the new Premier League football betting season. The anticipation is over and it is now down to business again. Online betting site Stan James are celebrating the start of the new season with a free £5 bet offer for their customers on the Premier League both teams to score markets this weekend.

Manchester United open their new season under boss Louis van Gaal with a comfortable looking home match against Swansea at Old Trafford on Saturday. Will it be the perfect start for the Dutchman as he aims to lift the Red Devils to the top again? Arsenal, with confidence after FA Cup and Community Shield wins, plus the big signings of Alexis Sanchez in the summer, also start their campaign on Saturday as they host the manager-less Crystal Palace at the Emirates.

Liverpool and reigning champions Manchester City kick off their respective campaigns on Sunday, with the Reds hosting Southampton at Anfield, and the Citizens taking a trip across country to St James’ Park to face Newcastle. This year’s favourites to win the premier League, Chelsea, open their account on Monday night with a game against newly promoted Burnley.

Place a £5 treble/acca on the Both Teams To Score market on Premier League matches across this weekend with the bookmaker and Stan James will give you back a free £5 bet, regardless of whether your original bet wins or loses! The bookie is also running first goalscorer insurance on all matches, refunding lost first goalscorer stakes if the selection you back scored second in a match instead of first.

West Brom v Sunderland Betting Preview

The Baggies have gone for a brave option in an untested manager, as Alan Irvine comes in to try and pick up the pieces at the Hawthorns. Will they be able to get back together after a difficult term last season, or will Sunderland be able to roll into the Midlands and make life for Irvine, in his first Premier League match, very uncomfortable?

West Brom v Sunderland Betting Tips

The Baggies only managed fourth from bottom last season, three points clear of the drop zone. They just couldn’t get their act together at all. West Brom won just seven games last term, the lowest win count in the division (jointly with relegated Cardiff). So there needs to be a huge turnaround at the Hawthorns and the struggle they had was a bit of a surprise given the squad that had been assembled. They have been changing up the squad in the summer, including bringing in Craig Gardner in from Sunderland.

They also have Brown Ideye now to look for for goals, and he is trading at a price of 7/4 with online betting site Stan James for this one. It cost ten million to bring him over from Dinamo Kiev and there is a lot of hope hanging on the shoulders of the 25 year old Nigerian. A lot of pressure on a début season. Despite the doom and gloom around the Hawthorns, they have actually won the last five home matches against the Black Cats and they could be some decent value to back in this one to pick up the win.

Meetings between these have been pretty high scoring affairs, and only two of the last eleven played between them have gone under 2.5 goals. So expect the goals to come, and you can back that by taking Both Teams To Score or just go straight over 2.5 goals with Stan James in this one. Both won their respective home matches in the league last season, the Baggies posting a 3-0 win at the Hawthorns in September. West Brom’s last four opening matches to a Premier League season have produced 14 goals in total.

Guys Poyet is the fourth different manger that the Black Cats have had on the opening weekend in the last four seasons. Last season they looked doomed at Christmas, sitting bottom of the table, but with a flourish, including thirteen points from their last six games, they pulled themselves clear. A lot of credit goes to Gus Poyet for that, and if only away games counted last season, the Black Cats would have been in the top half of the table. But with just the one win in the last nine against the Baggies, they are rightly underdogs on the road here.

West Brom v Sunderland Betting Odds

West Brom 6/5, Draw 23/10, Sunderland 5/2

Online betting site Stan James are offering a money back special on First Goalscorer bets placed with them. If the backed selection scores the second goal of the game instead of the first, then they will refund lost stakes on any televised English or Scottish match. New customers can get up to a free £10 bet as a welcome bonus too.

West Brom v Sunderland Predictions

The records hint towards the Baggies pulling a win out of the bag in this one. Expect the game to break the 2.5 goal mark, but there is plenty enough value in the Baggies to pick up maximum points as they have done in their last five home games against the Black Cats.

Coventry v Cardiff Betting Preview

It is Capital One Cup time, straight off the back of the new domestic season start across England. Up in the Midlands, many people’s tip for promotion from the Championship this season, Cardiff, taken on League One’s Coventry. Is there any hint of an upset here?

Coventry v Cardiff Betting Tips

Cardiff are running as decent priced favourites to take the win in this one, and therefore they are worth backing for this one. They have a solid record at Coventry, having gone unbeaten in six away games against the Sky Blues in all competitions (W3 D3). The Welsh outfit earned themselves a 1-1 draw on Friday in their Championship opener away at Blackburn, having to dig pretty deep, but they will be expected to do the number over lower ranked opposition in this one. Cardiff have only lost one of their last six first round ties in the League Cup, that was back in 2012 against Northampton.

Bluebirds boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have the depth to negotiate this test at Sixfields Stadium without too much fuss and bother. They have quality in the likes of Adam Le Fondre, Nicky Maynard, Federico Macheda, Javy Guerra and Friday night’s scorer Kenwyne Jones who are all 7/4 shots in the anytime goalscorer market for the tie. Ties like this aren’t usually that inspiring and so it is probably worth going under 2.5 goals for a price of 8/11 on this one at Stan James.

Coventry lost their League One opener against Bradford on the weekend and they could struggle this season after selling off Callum Wilson to Bournemouth in the summer. Reda Johnson netted a brace on his debut for the Sky Blues, but is out at a price of 6/1 in the anytime goalscorer market. Coventry haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their previous five home games in the League Cup. They have also gone out in the first round of the competition in four of their last five appearances.

Coventry v Cardiff Betting Odds

Cardiff Evens, Draw 5/2, Coventry 13/5

Online betting site Stan James will refund all losing First Goalscorer bets in cash, if the selection you have backed scored second instead of first in the game. This offer applies to all televised England or Scottish matches. New customers registering an account with online betting site Stan James can get up to a free £10 bet.

Coventry v Cardiff Predictions

Although the Bluebirds had a fight on their hands against Blackburn on Friday night, they should have an easier time in this one. They have the firepower to see of the Sky Blues and would back the value of even money on Cardiff to do so.

Steve McClaren (Derby)

Derby v Rotherham Betting Preview

It was heartbreak for the Rams last season as they lost in the play off final against QPR, missing their chance to taste Premier League football. So how will they respond this season? It is a tough introduction to the Championship for the newly promoted Rotherham as they head to Pride Park.

Derby v Rotherham Betting Tips

The Rams are running as favourites for this one and they haven’t lost any of their last five league matches against Rotherham, winning four and drawing the other one. So good reason to back Derby here. The last time they met was back in 2009, a match which Derby actually lost in the League Cup. There was so much to enjoy about Derby last season, including the amount of times they rescued points from losing position (22 points in total), producing a good show of never-say-die attitude and quality.

Derby are unbeaten in their last five matches played on the opening day of the season, three of them being won. They have big input up front from Chris Martin who is even money favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, but look for the influence of Craig Bryson, who was immense in the midfield for the Rams last season, weighing in with a remarkable sixteen goals. Bryson is a 2/1 shot in the anytime goalscorer market.

Rotherham haven’t won any of their last nine visits to Derby in all competitions, so really have their backs against the wall in this one it would seem. That having been said, they were great on the road last season in League One, only Wolves picking up more points away from home than they managed in the third tier. This is the first time since back in the 2004/05 season that Rotherham have contested the second tier of English football. Tough opener for them.

They will be hoping for far better fortunes though in the Championship, as on that last occasion, they won just five games all season long and picked up just 29 points in total, finishing bottom. Kieran Agard was top dog for them last season, netting 21 league goals and he is up as an 11/4 shot to find the net on the weekend.

Derby v Rotherham Betting Odds

Derby 4/7, Draw 16/5, Rotherham 5/1

Online betting site Stan James have a new promotion running. They will refund First Goalscorer bets in cash if the backed selection that you’ve chosen scores second rather than first in any televised English or Scottish match.

Derby v Rotherham Predictions

The Rams look as if they have the goals in them and the quality to see off the challenge of Rotherham pretty easily. Would comfortably push for the game to go over 2.5 goals and a Derby to win to nil shot is 7/4 at Stan James, which is realistic given how big of a step up it is going to be for Rotherham.

Stan James

Online betting site Stan James have a fantastic golf betting offer for the Canadian Open and the strong field that is out there. The Quebec course at the Royal Montreal Golf Club is a par 70 affair and it is Brandt Snedeker who is out to defend his title this week. You are going to be looking for someone with immaculate accuracy here because the course is a pretty tight one. Snedeker is trading as a 25/1 shot to retain the title.

Heading up the market as favourite is Jim Furyk in at a price of 9/1 with Stan James, followed by 12/1 shot Dustin Johnson. Furyk is a two time winner of the event and in having carded nine top 20’s in his last 10 starts then the consistency is there to make him an attractive proposition. Johnson is also a man in steady form as well and should have the placement to contend after finishing tied for second last year at Glen Abbey.

Matt Kuchar was a co-runner up with Johnson at last year’s Canadian Open and his steady hand of monotonous, machine-like golf, should present some big value at 14/1, but it is perhaps Graeme McDowell who is looking the biggest value of the main contenders. He is just one of the form men in the world at the moment, with top tens in his last three tournaments. He improved all the time at The Open last week after a slow start in the first round, a week’s break probably hindering his Open challenge. Still he managed a T9 though.

McDowell’s all round game is going so well at the moment, and if he can just hold his putting together then he should well be in the mix here. Other big names near the top of the market are Charl Schwartzel, Luke Donald, Charley Hoffman and Graham Delaet.

Bet £10 in play on the Canadian Open outright market on Thursday with Stan James and you will get a free bet back to use in-play on Friday! Superb free golf bet offer from the bookmaker and new customers registering an account with them can get up to a free £10 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Paddy Power

The BHA took showed some proactive initiative on Wednesday, as they stepped in to prevent what they thought was a potential all-weather coup from happening. They struck first by contacting both the Gaming Commission and bookmakers after their suspicions were raised.

Nine horses (four from Tony Newcombe’s yard and five trained by Ann Stokell) were all subject to major market moves at Lingfield and Kempton, and that set the BHA into defensive mode, which they did by going on the attack.

It’s no surprise that they would look to protect the integrity of the sport and its reputation after being blindsided back in January 2014, by former trainer Barney Curley who masterminded a reported £2m coup on four low-key races.

“The BHA alerted the Gambling Commission yesterday to the possibility of a complex betting-related issue involving races at Lingfield and Kempton“.

Immediately Paddy Power stepped up and took precautionary measures to protect themselves, by putting SP prices on the seven races in question, and were quickly followed in suit by Bet365, William Hill, Stan James, Boylesports and Coral, all of which pulled the plug on betting in the Lingfield 2.00, 2.30, 3.30 and 4.40 and Kempton’s 6.10, 6.40 and 9.10.

Paddy Power stated: “We’ve seen plenty of action on the Stephen Arnold/Ann Stokell horses and we’ve SPed races due to strange activity.”

“We’ve seen a few Tony Newcombe-trained runners being backed, but there doesn’t seem a link between that gamble and the Arnold/Stokell gamble except that some of the Newcombe horses being backed are in some of the races concerned with the other gamble.”
